About Bralmi Food
This Question Came Up in the
Trial for Libel.
A. ""Weekly" printed some criticism of t h e rTig. made for
our foods. It evidently did not fancy our reply printed in var
ious newspapers, and brought suit for libel At the trial some
interesting facts came out.
Some of the chemical and medical experts differed widely.
The following facts, however, were quite clearly established:
Analysis of brain by an unquestionable authority, Geoghegan,
shows cf Mineral Salts, Phosphoric Acid and Potash combined
(Phosphate of Potash) 2.91 per cent of the total, 5.33 cf all Min
eral Salts.
. This & over one-half.
' Beaunis, another authority, shows "Phosphoric Acid com
bined" and Potash 73.44 per cent from a total of 10L07.
, Considerable mere than one-half of Phosphate cf Potash.
Analysis of Grape-Nuts shows: Potassium and Phosphorus,
(which join and make Phosphate of Potash,) is considerable more
than one-half of all the mineral salts in the food.
Dr. Geo. W. Carey, an authority on the constituent elements
of the body, says: "The gray matter of the brain is controlled en
tirely by the inorganic cell-salt. Potassium Phosphate (Phosphate
cf Potash.) This salt unites with albumen and by the addition of
oxygen creates nerve fluid or the gray matter of the brain. Of
course; there is a trace of other salts and other organic matter in
nerve fluid, but Potassium Phosphate is the chief factor, and has
the power within itself to attract, by its own law of affinity, all
things needed to manufacture the elixir cf life."
Further on he says: "The beginning and end of the matter is
to supply the lacking principle, and in molecular form, exactly as
nature furnishes it in vegetables, fruits and grain. To, supply
deficiencies this is the only law of cure."
The natural conclusion is that if Phosphate of Potash is the
needed mineral element in brain and you use food which does not
contain it, you have brain fag because its daily loss is not
On the contrary, if you eat food known to be rich in this ele
ment, you place before the life forces that which nature demands
for brain-building.
In the trial a sneer was uttered because Mr. Post announced
that he had made years of research in this country and some
clinics in Europe, regarding the effect of the mind oa digestion
of food.
But we must be patient with those who sneer at facts they
know nothing about.
Mind does not work well on a brain that is broken down by
lack of nourishment.
A peaceful and evenly poised mind is necessary to good diges-
Worry, anxiety, fear, hate, etc., eta, directly interfere with
or stops the flow of Ptyalin, the digestive juice of the mouth, and
also interferes with the flow of the digestive juices cf stomach
and pancreas.
Therefore, tha mental state of the individual has much to do
(more than suspected) with digestion.
This trial has demonstrated:
That Brain is made of Phosphate of Potash as the principal
Mineral Salt, added to albumen and water.
That Grape-Nuts contains that element as more than one
half of all its mineral salts.
A healthy brain is important if one wouli "do things" in
this world.
A man who sneers at 'Mind" sneers at the best and least un
derstood part of himself. That part which some folks believe
links us to the Infinite.
Mind asks for a healthy brain upon which to act, and Nature
has defined a way to make a healthy brain and renew it day by
day as it is used up from work cf the previous day.
Nature's way to rebuild is by the use of food which supplies
the things required.
